SHOW & TELL: Nature Sun Prints {Martha Stewart Living} & a Giveaway

MD109213_FINAL_ART_23_reducedSummertime creativity is always better outdoors. The sun, the abundance of nature, the sun! This project featured in Martha Stewart Living is the perfect summer project. Head outdoors and make some beautiful nature sun prints.

MD109213_GATHERING_93_reducedHalf the fun is collecting the natural elements to use in your prints. Ferns are a favorite of mine. The intricate leaves look beautiful no matter how you use them. I’ve pressed ferns and used them in a variety of crafts. But the sky is the limit with these sun prints. Use your imagine and collect interesting things.
